    Hi Renaut. We are regular users of MailPress and I like it very much. Thank you for developing it.

    FYI your FAQ link here at WordPress.org still points to


    which STILL as of this writing (3/19/2013) links to

    Since blog.mailpress.org and mailpress.org still resolve properly, are you in charge of both those domains, or are there just still spammer redirects left on your pages?

    Headers are:

    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
    Set-Cookie: 240plan=R3476730427; path=/; expires=Fri, 22-Mar-2013 04:16:49 GMT
    Date: Tue, 19 Mar 2013 15:55:41 GMT
    Server: Apache/2.2.X (OVH)
    Location: http://www.mailpress.org/wiki/
    Vary: Accept-Encoding
    Content-Length: 238
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859

    Also, is MailPress still being developed? Your recent endorsement of WikiMail might be misinterpreted...

    Hey, Renaut,

    You got one of the best plugins in the repository! Let me help you in any possible way in order to get the real site with the documentation and so on online! I've been playing around with WordPress security and stuff for quite a while now, so I believe I can give you a hand.

    It would be great, if I can contribute this way for the plugin and the community!

    Kaspersky Internet Security prevents access to your website and blog. The links in wordpress that lead to them are marked in red. Is there any solution to be implemented? Thank you.

    Honestly, this has been an issue for months and months (years?). As someone who likes and uses MailPress every day, I have to wonder what's going on!

    The web site was taken off line many months ago, you've only recently brought it back, and yet apparently it still needs cleaning up.

    You HAVE to understand how this destroys trust people have with the software. How secure could MailPress itself be when its own web site is so compromised?

    Most of us can't even use the software properly because all the documentation is gone. (On top of that, the site is touting OTHER paid mailing solutions instead of MailPress.)

    For a long while I simply assumed you weren't even developing MailPress any more, because the web site was shut down and then apparently owned by spammers.

    Please, clean up the site! You could just wipe it, restore some data from 3rd party archives.

    Of course I know this is free, open source, and that you owe us nothing. But this has really gone on too long if MailPress is to maintain its reputation....


    (end rant) :)

    Nah, we are still missing the wiki. The tutorials section in the blog seems empty too.

    I just tried going to mailpress.org

    It redirected to blog.mailpress.org, and eventually displayed the following:

    You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.
    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    If I use http://www.mailpress.org it gets me to the WikiMail advertisement.

    Any attempt to pull up the Wiki, even by direct links to article URLs, just goes back to the WikiMail ad on the blog home page. It feels as if the current MailPress maintainers REALLY don't want us to use MailPress. It's like pulling teeth trying to figure things out without documentation.

    I still like the software, but that web site... :(

    the wiki has been removed due to spammers filling my mysql db.
    the links remain in the plugin
    next version will point to the blog and yes i need some motivation to rebuild the help pages.

    If you publish somewhere the dump of the wiki db, we can help you cleaning it out and extracting the content, that is needed for the tutorials.

    I'd be happy to help you, having in mind how useful MailPress is and how much I wish it continues to evolve :)
